I saw a segment on Fox News last evening (yes, I listen to Fox News) on a new program sponsored by Darrel Issa, the House Majority Leader. It's called The American Job Creators - What's holding your business back? http://jobs.majorityleader.gov/
Mr. Issa explained that he and his committee are trying to gather information direct from American Business Owners as to what regulations are affecting their ability to grow and prosper in this very difficult economy. The concept is to go straight to the people who really do create jobs and ask them what would help them if it was taken out of the way of their growth.
I believe this is the first step in the right direction in Washington. The Government keeps saying they are going to do this or that, another stimulus or ten, to create more jobs. What most of them don't seem to get is that Government doesn't create jobs, and doesn't spend any money it hasn't taken forcibly (yes I meant forcibly - taxes are not optional) from the taxpayers.
The Government does not and cannot create jobs, only businesses create jobs. Maybe this new program where Mr. Issa can get the information straight from business owners on what he and his committee can do to help their specific business is a very big step in the right direction. I hope those of you that own small businesses that read this take the time and go to the website and fill out the form to tell them what the government is doing to you to hurt your business, I did.
Maybe if enough of us speak up we will get some much needed change in our Nation's Capital.
